frequently asked questions
As your pregnancy coach, I offer support during and after pregnancy, helping you have a healthy pregnancy with yoga, breath work and daily habits .
The big difference is that as your Pregnancy Coach, I will not be present during your birth (virtual birth support is an option you can add to your package as desired). I work with you throughout your pregnancy, providing tools and support so that you feel confident and informed during the labour and birth of your baby. We may also work together during your 4th trimester to ensure you feel supported as you recover, navigate life with a newborn and begin physical exercise.
As your Pregnancy Coach, I will not be present during the physical labour and birth of your baby. Thriving Birth is designed to help you (and your partner) feel confident, informed and empowered in birth and postpartum. We even have a session dedicated to your relationship with communication exercises, how to help each other, fertility awareness and being the best couple while also being the best new parents.
A willingness to learn and try is a beautiful thing, and it goes a long way! If you’re not currently physically active, or are new to yoga, don’t stress. We can tailor your new practice to meet you at your level with modifications, props and support. You’ll be amazed at what the body can do with a little practice.
The ideal time for us to connect is around weeks 26-28 of your pregnancy so we can dive into your third trimester with physical, emotional and information support and create a solid foundation for daily habits.
In the event of a scheduled cesarean section, we’ll create a birth plan that ensures you know your options as well as prepare you for a possible spontaneous labour. Unplanned c-sections will be discussed and planned for as best as possible when we work on your birth plan, so that you feel in-control and can advocate for yourself and your baby with as little stress as possible. During our postpartum call, we will adjust your plan to reflect your changing recovery needs and infant care.
Every pregnancy is unique to the birthing person as is the birth. As your Pregnancy Coach, I will help you to create positive, lifelong habits that take you far beyond our time together. You’ll receive evidence-based support to help you make decisions, address changes from this pregnancy to previous ones and reduce your stress (especially if you’ve got other littles running around).
This program focuses on whole body health with yoga inspired techniques. We will discuss the basics of nutrition from a whole foods perspective to accompany the physical and emotional aspects of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Access to our Registered Holistic Nutritionist during some modules is included in the program.
